May 25 1967 is a date ingrained into the DNA of every Celtic supporter. Their club will always be the first British winners of the European Cup, having beaten Inter Milan in the final with a late Stevie Chalmers goal, on a balmy Lisbon night – but for some, grainy YouTube clips and faded news cuttings of that glorious sixties evening are their main insight into the club's finest day.
Fifty years on, well-respected Celtic author and historian David Potter now looks back to 1967 – not just to the landmark final but also to the build-up and the backdrop of global and news events as they appeared at the time.
Lovingly and sympathetically written I Remember 67 Well offers a step back in time to reassess one of Britain’s greatest footballing achievements.
- The European Cup final itself is described in detail
- The Scottish Cup final against Aberdeen, a great day in itself, is well dealt with
- The Scottish League was won in the rain – at Ibrox!
- If that were not enough, Scotland also beat England at Wembley
- And then there was the (perhaps inevitable) fall from grace in September
- All rounded off by the World Club Championship, with all its horrors, in South America
